"Love on the Brain" is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna for her eighth studio album, Anti (2016). It was written and produced by Fred Ball, with additional writing by Joseph Angel and Rihanna, and Kuk Harrell serving as the vocal producer. The song was provided to US rhythmic contemporary and urban contemporary radio stations on September 27, 2016, as the album's fourth single. "Love on the Brain" is a doo-wop and soul ballad inspired by 1950s and 1960s music. Its instrumentation consists of a guitar arpeggio, swirling organ, a simple chord progression, syncopated strings, and orchestra. Lyrically, the song has themes of swinging back and forth between the highs and lows of a toxic love. Commercially, the song reached the top of the Polish chart, as well as the top-twenty in France and New Zealand, and top-forty in Austria, Canada and Germany. In the United States, the song reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her 22nd top-five single breaking her tie with Elvis Presley as the artist with the 5th most top-five singles, and it was also her 30th top-ten single tying her with Madonna and The Beatles as the only acts in history to appear at least thirty times in the top-ten of the Hot 100. Rihanna performed the track during her Anti World Tour, as well as at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and as a part of a medley at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
